Stella Artois Cidre

I found this Stella Artois Cidre at a gas station in Sedona, Arizona. I had never seen it before and decided to try it. I was surprised to see that Stella Artois makes an apple cider since it seems so far off from their world famous signature beer. It came in a pack of 4 for $6.95.
When I got back to the hotel, I opened one up with a can opener. The 4.5% hand pressed apple cider was very sweet and tasted more like a juice than an alcoholic beverage. It was refreshing and easy to drink due to the low alcohol content.
I personally think that the cider would taste better if the alcohol content was higher which would reduce the sweetness factor. My friend on the other hand, liked the cider and did not mind the sweetness nor the low alcohol content.
The bottle was beautifully crafted with sleek labels and etchings near the top. It set the tone for a high quality product and fell slightly short for my palate. If you are looking for a sweeter cider to drink in the day, then this is great for that. I am sure that this cider will be available this summer just in time for bbq season.
